MOI Holds ‘Mock Drill’ to Test Security System at New Doha Metro

MOI mock drill

The Public Transportation Security Department of the Ministry of Interior (MOI) organised a meeting with the railways company to discuss the contingency scenario in the Doha Metro in the presence of representatives from a number of MOI departments, who also participated in a ‘mock drill’. These departments included the Civil Defence, Al Fazaa, NCC and the Traffic Directorate.

Major Jassim Abdulrahman Al Sulaiti, Assistant Director of the Public Transport Security Department, explained the need to prepare and implement such operational scenarios in the metro stations to test the effectivity of the integrated security system. A theoretical framework for an emergency plan was also discussed, where procedures were reviewed and several others were agreed upon.

The mock exercise was carried out at the station near Hamad International Airport to increase the readiness of all security authorities in preparation for the operational phase of the Doha Metro.
